Colts WR Alec Pierce caught just 3 passes for 28 yards in Sunday's loss to the Eagles, but he drew a team-high 8 targets. That came in the 1st game all season in which Pierce ran more routes than WR Parris Campbell. Michael Pittman (7) and Campbell (6) finished close behind in targets. Pittman led the team with 6 catches and 75 yards. Campbell caught 5 balls for 67 yards. Next up for Indy: an upside passing matchup with Pittsburgh.

The targets returned Sunday for Colts WR Parris Campbell, with QB Matt Ryan taking back over for Sam Ehlinger. Campbell matched WR Michael Pittman for the team leads in targets (9) and receptions (7) in the win over the Raiders. He turned those into 76 yards and the team's lone TD catch (from 35 yards out). Pittman gained just 53 yards on his 7 catches (7.6 per reception). TE Kyren Granson checked in 3rd with 4 catches for 57 yards. Campbell now has 9+ targets and 7+ receptions in each of the past 3 Ryan games.

Colts QB Sam Ehlinger threw for just 103 yards on 15-of-29 passing in Sunday's loss to the Patriots. He threw an INT and took 9 sacks. Ehlinger did run for 39 yards on 5 attempts to lead Indy in rushing. WR Michael Pittman finished with only 3 catches for 22 yards on a team-high 6 targets. Parris Campbell posted a 2-15 receiving line on 5 targets. WR Alec Pierce drew just 2 looks, catching 1 for 23 yards. A visit to the Raiders lies next on the schedule.

The Colts on Tuesday fired OC Marcus Brady. It's an understandable move for a team ranked 30th in scoring and 18th in yards, but we're not sure how much impact there will be. HC Frank Reich calls the offensive plays, and Brady worked under him since Reich took the Indy job in 2018. If Brady were a primary issue here, it's tough to imagine him climbing from QBs coach to OC in 2021 and then maintaining the OC job this season. We'll see where the Colts offense goes from here.

Colts QB Sam Ehlinger threw for 201 yards in his 1st NFL start Sunday against the Commanders and ran for 15 yards on 6 attempts. He took 2 sacks and lost a fumble, but it doesn't sound like he did anything to jeopardize his role. "I thought he threw the ball well, I thought he looked poised, made good decisions, gave us a chance," HC Frank Reich told reporters afterward, according to The AP. "We'll look at the film more closely, but my first impression was that he played well." Ehlinger targeted WR Michael Pittman with 39% of his pass attempts (9 of 23). WR Alec Pierce finished 2nd with 5 targets. WR Parris Campbell garnered just 2 looks. Ehlinger shouldn't be in your fantasy football plans for a Week 9 visit to New England.

Colts WR Parris Campbell led the team with 12 targets, 10 receptions and 70 receiving yards in Sunday's loss to the Titans, adding Indy's only offensive TD. It marked his 2nd straight game of double-digit targets, though high volume for QB Matt Ryan has certainly helped. Campbell garnered 27.3% of Ryan's pass attempts Sunday and 22.5% over the past 2 games combined. He'll be worth a look in WR3 territory for the Week 8 home date with Washington. Michael Pittman checked in 2nd among Colts WRs against Tennessee, with a 6-58 receiving line on 9 targets. Rookie Alec Pierce collected just 3 catches for 37 yards on 4 targets. The team's TEs combined for just 2 catches and 10 yards on 3 targets.

Colts QB Matt Ryan threw for a season-high 356 yards and 2 TDs in Sunday's loss to the Titans. He spread the ball around. TE Mo Alie-Cox, WR Alec Pierce and WR Michael Pittman tied for the target lead with 6 apiece. Alie-Cox caught all of his for 85 yards and both TDs. Pierce caught 4 balls for 80 yards. Pittman was limited to 3 catches for 31 yards. TE Kyle Granson and WR Parris Campbell also hauled in 4 receptions apiece. Challenging matchups with Denver and Jacksonville lie ahead the next 2 weeks.

Colts WR Michael Pittman returned from his 1-game quad injury to draw a team-high 9 targets in Sunday's win over the Chiefs. He turned that into team highs in receptions (8) and receiving yards (72) but watched TE Jelani Woods claim both of the team's TDs. Although operating as the clear top target through his 2 games, Pittman has stopped short of truly dominating in that area, claiming 25.3% of QB Matt Ryan's total attempts in those contests. That level will work for supporting his fantasy production going forward but doesn't match the biggest target hogs around the league. Alec Pierce checked in 2nd among Colts wideouts Sunday with 5 targets in his return from a concussion.

Colts WR Michael Pittman (quad) is not listed on the final Week 3 injury report. He was limited on Wednesday and Thursday and put in a full practice on Friday. It looks like Pittman is ready for a full slate of snaps vs. the Chiefs this weekend. He should be back in fantasy lineups after his 9-121-1 line in the opener.

Colts WR Michael Pittman (quad) remained limited in Thursday's practice. He seems on track to return for this weekend's game vs. the Chiefs, but we'll see how he's listed on the final injury report tomorrow.

Colts WR Michael Pittman (quad) got in a limited practice on Wednesday. We'll see how he progresses through the week and whether he's ready to return for Sunday's showdown with the Chiefs.

Colts HC Frank Reich said Monday that WR Michael Pittman has “made good progress” with his quad injury and is on track to return for Sunday's game vs. the Chiefs. We'll track his practice participation this week.

The Colts have downgraded WR Michael Pittman (quad) to out for Sunday's game against the Jaguars. With Alec Pierce already out, Parris Campbell, Ashton Dulin and Mike Strachan suddenly look like the top 3 wideouts for Sunday's upside matchup with the Jaguars. The WR situation hurts QB Matt Ryan's fantasy upside but helps the target upside for Colts RBs and TEs. We still wouldn't have an Indy TE in play for most fantasy formats. But Nyheim Hines gets more interesting.

Colts WR Michael Pittman (quad) is listed as questionable for this weekend's game vs. the Jaguars. He went from a limited practice on Wednesday to no practice on Thursday and Friday. We'll look for further updates on Pittman and get the Colts' inactives around 11:30 am ET on Sunday. But he'll obviously carry added risk in Week 2 fantasy lineups if he ends up playing.

Colts WR Michael Pittman (quad) did not practice on Thursday. That's a downgrade from his limited workout on Wednesday. Pittman's status for this weekend's game vs. the Jaguars is now in question. Check back tomorrow for another update.

Colts WR Michael Pittman drew 13 targets in Sunday's tie with Houston, 6 more than his nearest teammate. Matt Ryan's 50 pass attempts helped enhance that number, but the 26% target share marked a nice start for Indy's clear lead wideout. He proved efficient, too, racking up a 9-121-1 receiving line. RB Jonathan Taylor and TE Kyle Granson tied for 2nd on the team with 7 targets apiece. RB Nyheim Hines and WR Ashton Dulin followed at 6 apiece. No one else drew more than 4. That made Week 1 disappointing for WRs Parris Campbell and Alec Pierce, who drew targets on just 7.7% and 6.3% of routes, respectively, according to Pro Football Focus. (For context: Pittman finished at 27.1%, Dulin at 46.2%.) Campbell and/or Pierce will need things to change before making sense for fantasy football lineups.
